Come Celebrate CW Arts with a Picnic in the Park



Sunday, August 29 from noon to 3:00 pm in Bissell Park Picnic Shelter
127 East Mill Street, Elora

Time to reconnect with your friends and fellow artists? The Elora Fergus Arts Council Board feels the same way! It has been a long while since we gathered in any way to enjoy each other’s company in the name of art.
It’s a picnic – bring your family and do bring chairs.  We will have lemonade, iced tea, water, and a celebration cake showing off our new logo. Bring your own savory fare or you can buy something lovely from the market café tent trailer.  They’ll be on hand with delicious options just for us.
Join us for fun, music, some lawn games (croquet anyone?) and catching up with friends in an outdoor setting that gives us space to reconnect safely.
We plan to set up a few display racks if anyone wants to show work. We will use the picnic shelter and canopies if needed. Of course, you are welcome to dabble in a little plein air painting too!
This is a free, family-friendly event celebrating coming back to art in public again.
Let us know if you can attend – it will help us plan a better event.

Elora Community Theatre is running a Sunday matinee of Shakespeare’s most delightful comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  It starts at 3 pm at the west end of the park and is the perfect end to a picnic for the arts.
